Arriba Melbourne Mexican Festival

Event Details

Arriba! Melbourne Mexican Festival is a free Mexican themed event in the heart of the city.
The emphasis is on Mexican cuisine, its folklore, Day of the Dead Celebration, dance, music, bright costumes, and “mariachi”.
The entertainment program includes performances by various artists, Day of the Dead celebration, live music, dance and DJs.
Typically Mexican cuisine such as salsa, guacamole, enchiladas, tacos, burritos, and fajitas highlight the menu.
DAY OF THE DEAD(Dia de los Muertos) is the main concept of the festival!
So get ready for a weekend full of skulls, face painting and a lot of costumes. Day of the dead costume recommended but not mandatory.
Arguably Mexico’s most famous festival, The Day of the Dead is not about death, but life. “Hay más tiempo que vida,” goes a Mexican saying. “There is more time than life.”
Day of the Dead is a time when people remember and honour their deceased loved ones, with the idea that the spirits return on this one day of the year to be together with their families. Festivities take place in cities and villages throughout Mexico honouring their dead.
We will showcase Melbourne’s rich and diverse Mexican culture through:
• Cuisine: Over 25 Mexican and Latino-American vendors providing a wide range of street foods.
• Margarita garden: A fully licensed area with DJs, bar and delicious Margaritas.
• Handcrafts: Local manufacturers and importers displaying a selection of Mexican and Latin American handcrafted products.
• Entertainment: Mariachis, folk, live bands and DJs performing throughout the entire event.
• Kids Area: With a wide option and attractions for children’s activities.
So, put on your costume and see you all there!
